MOB LAAV IN INDIANA'
FIVE MEN LYNCHED TO ONE TREE. Throe of llio Victims Wero First Kllloil In I lie lull, Thou Dead nnd Living; Were Slrnny I'p Together Accused Qof M.iuy Misdeeds. Vki:sau.t.ks, Ind., Sept. in. For ycuis tlic farmers of the county havo Wen the, victims of a lawless baud. Farmers would come into town with a liuncli of cattle or a load of farm pro ducts, and the next morning would bo found along the roadside suffering from wounds and minus the proceeds of their sale. Old (ierinan farmers were visited, nnd both men nnd wo men subjected to tortures. Aged Ger man women were forced to stand upon red hot stoves to compel them to dis close the hiding pluce of treasures. Arrests were made, but it was seldom that conviction followed. During the past week robberies had increased alarmingly. On last Satur day word was iveoivcd by the sheriff from one of the band that the store of AVonlcy Bros., at Correct. Ind., ten miles from here, was to be entered, and the sheriff nrrunged that his in formant should accompany them, and, with five deputies, wont to the place. Sheriff Kushing concealed himself in the cellar, while his deputies were stationed at a convenient distance outside. .Shortly after midnight the robbers reached the store, and Clifford Gordon and the sheriff's informant broke, into the building. .lust as (iordon stepped inside tho she riff seized him. Doth drew revol vers and began firing, licrt Ansoms, another of tho robbers, joined in tho fu.silade, while the deputies went to tho assistance of tho sheriff. Some thirty shots were fired, the sheriff was bliot through the hand and Cordon was shot several times. (iordon and Ansoms succeeded in escaping and came to Osgood, where they were ar rested. The robbers had driven out to the phwee in a buggy belonging to Kyle Levi, and from information subse quently gathered it was learned that the robbery had heeti planned at tho home of William Jenkins. Tho two latter were arrested as accessories. All were taken to the jail at Yer-l-ailles. Henry Schuller, ". I years, was put in jail for robbing the barber shop at Osgood last week. Levi was ;"7 years of age, Gordon Ansoms ;0, Jenkins 27. "When it became, known that the robbers wore in jail it was quietly suggested by the farmers who had been robbed that "justice" lie sum marily dealt to the prisoners. At 1 o'clock this morning horsemen from all quarters dismounted on a hill side near Versailles and about 400 men marched into the town. The jail was in charge of 'William Kcunan, Sheriff Bushings brother-in-law, the former being at home on account of his in jury. In front of the jail is the resi lience proper, and there Kennan, Robert Jiarnett, William Block and AVinsett, deputies, were sleeping. Shortly before '.1 o'clock there was a knock at the door, and when Kennan and the others opened it throe masked men' put revolvers to their heads and ordered them to turn over the keys. This they did and the mob filed into the jail. Levi, .lenkins and Shulter were, upon tho lower floor, while Gor don and Andrews were in the upper tier. Levi and Jenkins and Shulter fchowed fight and the former was shot through the breast, while, the skulls of the two latter were crushed with stools. Ropes were in readiness and the lynchers adjusted a noose around the neck of each and pinioned their feet nnd hands and then the march began. They were not carried, but, with sev eral men at the end of each rope, were, dragged -0') feet to an elm tree, whero their bodies were suspended. Jt is -said Levi, Jenkins and Shulter were dead before they reached the place. Death resulted from hanging in the cases of Cordon and Ansoms. None of the citizens seem to deplore the a.-tion of the mob, but upon the contrary the hanging; of three or four more members of tho gang is being talked of. No troops have been asked for: the citizens say that they are not n anted. Western Tost masters. Washington', Sept. 17.

Tlio Shaft at Galena Searched In Vain Were the Corpses Decomposed'.' Gai.kna, Kan., Kept 19. Tho bot tom of tho lifty foot shaft in which the bodies of two of tho Stailleback victims wero thought to bo was reached last night, but no bodies wero found. As soon as arrangements can be made, it is probable that another shaft will be searched, though lack of success in the first instance has rather discouraged tho searchers. The persistency with which Cora Stuftlebuck clings to the story of tho murder of the two girls nnd the throw ing of thoir bodies into tho shaft just cleaned out leads tho officers to believo that her story is true. Cora stated ut the commencement of tho work that sho had heard tho Stafflebacks talking about taking the bodies out as soon as they roso to the surface of the water, and they may have dono so. There is another explanation, however, much more plausible. The water in the shaft is strongly alkaline, and the bodies may have been consumed by a slower but similar process to tho one attributed to Luetgert of Chicago, who is said to have dissolved his wife's body in a tank of caustic solu tion. MINERS CO TO WORK. I.etireen 1.1,000 nnd 18,000 Diggers In tlio Pittsburg District Again. riTTSM'RG, I'a., Sept. 17.

PRESIDENT DIAZ'S ASSAIL AN T STABBED TO DEATH. Tho miscreant 1'onfossed that He Had lutondod to Kill the President Twenty Member of the Mob I'ndor Arrest Deplored by the lletter l'ooplo Citv of Mkxkio, Sept. IS. A n nl fo Arroyo, tho miscreant who made an attempt upon tho life of President Diaz, was set upon by a mob of infur iated citizens shortly after midnight aud killed with knife stabs. General satisfaction was expressed here over tho affair, although tho more reflective people, especially bus iness and professional men, said they deplored the act, and feared it would be misinterpreted abroad. From tho moment Arroyo was ar rested in front of tho alameda, or ecu tral public park, masses of people kept clamoring for his life, and taunted Lieutenant La Croix, who had the prisoner in charge, with not using his PRESIDENT DIAZ OF MEXIC0t pistols on the criminal. A great crowd of people followed the gendarmes to the national palace, where the prison er was searched, and then, despite the remonstrances of the army officers, turned over to the civil authorities by request of President Diaz, who was opposed to having the man tr.ied by court-martial, aud who, iu fact, ad vised a lenient policy. Accordingly the prisoner was allowed his full con stitutional rights, At night ho was taken, clad in a straight jacket, to the ofliee of the in spector of police, which consists of two rooms with two windows opening on the street. The prisoner was given a mat to rest on and was carefully guarded. Near at hand, in an adjoin ing apartment, were four officers of the secret service. As Arroyo lay on the mat he conversed with one of tho officers who had known him for years. He was asked how he could have coino to make the murderous assault on tho president, knowing, as he did, how severe tho law would ileal with him, and especially as he had studied tho law. Arroyo manifested a cynical indifference, and declared lie had in tended to stun the president and then, taking the president's small sword, to kill him. Suddenh-, while the two wero con versing, and tho prisoner was smok ing a cigarette, tho tramping of many feet on tho stairs leading up to the floor on which the office is situated was heard, and there were confused shouts of "Long live President Diaz!" "Long live Mexico and deatli to an archists!" Arroyo shuddered and with trood rea son for immediately the door was burst down and a great crowd of peo ple, apparently of the lower classes, entered, the leader bearing a small Mexican flag on a stick. Officer San chez cried to tho crowd to fall back and advanced on them with his sword, but the mob overcame him and, throw ing him down, advanced over his body to where Arroyo lay trembling. Yells went up; "Kill him; ho belongs to us!" and a din arose as of a horde of sav ages. Windows were broken, and the noiso aroused tho officers of the secret ser vice in tho adjoining room, who rushed to the scene, but did not firo on the crowd, fearing they might kill some of tho comrades of tho polico in side, so they contented themselves with firing shots from tho windows, thus calling together tho police on neighboring corners, who wera or dered to prevent any persons leaving the city building. Meantime, iu the room above, a frightful tragedy had been enacted. Many knives were plunged into the body of Arroyo, who, of course, was entirely helpless. There were nine wounds in all. One of the gendarmes was wounded in the fight with the mob. Over twenty arrests havo been made, and all nrc locked up incommunicado and have not been released, pending a strict inquiry which is to be made. Arroyo had been in prison several times, on one occasion for shooting a man. His acquaintances say he was somewhat crazy and inclined to acts of violence. He drove his father to despair and death by his conduct, having forged his father's name. Ho was .VJ years of age, son of a tailor, but was given a liberal education and became for a time a military cadet and then took up law. President Diaz, in a speech, deplored the lynching of Arroyo and declared if there was any fault in the vigilance on the part of the police it should be investigated and the consequences fall on vhc heads of the culpable persons.
